Evening fun with daddy

The days are getting shorter and the evenings are drawing in, but for the moment it is still quite warm at least. When Daddy comes home just after 6 in the evening it is family dinner time, but after dinner is very much Monkey and Daddy time. Monkey loves the time he gets to spend with his Daddy and lately they have been very much making the most of the warm evenings and having a lot fun in the garden between dinner and bathtime. MonkeyΒ always has loads of energy at this time of day so I guess that’s why it is called the witching hour!

Most of the time I leave them to it but a couple of times lately I have poked my head out to watch the giggles.

Sometimes they do a bit of gardening,Β and Monkey loves running under the stream of water from the hose if Daddy is watering the plants.

Sometimes they just run around like a pair of loonies,Β or play in the sand pit,Β or on his climbing frame.

Whatever they do though they have a lot of fun together and the fun continues into bathtime. There was so much giggling at bathtime the other day that I poked my head in… to be told “bye mummy, close the door” by Monkey. Charming eh? I know when I am not wanted! πŸ˜‰ Made me chuckle and made me very happy to know he was just having fun with his Daddy πŸ™‚

    • Definitely good to burn off that energy, and just lovely time with his daddy πŸ™‚ Thank you, it’s generally covered in sand and toys but as long as we have fun out there that’s all that matters!! xx

  1. That’s so sweet!! Really special for them both to have that time together and it’s great you’ve managed to sneak some photos that capture it so beautifully….totally natural and you can really see how much fun they are having! A lovely ordinary moment post πŸ™‚ x

    • Thanks lovely, it is such a lovely time of day for them! Will be a shame when the nights draw in and they can’t be so carefree outside! xx

  2. Aww that is so lovely, great that they get some time together. I remember when my dad used to come home after a day at work was always so lovely to see him. It is definitely true what they say distance makes the heart grow fonder, thank you for linking up to #magicmoments

  3. It looks like they’re having so much fun, it’s great that monkey gets to spend so much time with his dad in the evening. I love how cheeky he is telling you bye at bath time! Popping in from Magic Moments.

  4. Hello there, that’s lovely-we do a similar thing in our house where Daddy takes our little boy into the garden or to the allotment, or even swimming if little one is in the mood! They both love it and can spend a bit of quality time together after Daddy has been at work all day. Really lovely photos as well by the way xxx #magicmoments

  5. Daddies are so great for fun aren’t they, my two go completely loopy when my husband comes home and all hell breaks loose for a while until I have to call time and they have to go to bed. Looks like Monkey is having a great time, and your garden looks so nice and tidy! #letkidsbekids

  6. Oh this is so lovely- really important for them to get one on one time together and must be so lovely to occasionally peek your head round and watch them. Even from the photos you can tell they are having a wonderful time together- a perfect little routine! x

    • Oh I know, we are definitely making the most of these evenings while we can, though they have turned a bit cooler even in just the last few days! xx

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
